Everything's coming up...tomatoes...at Mahiga Hope High

Greenhouse at Mahiga Hope

This fall Mahiga Hope High School expanded their gardening program to include the construction and operation of a large greenhouse. With your help,The Nobelity Project provided the seed money to help the school qualify for a grant for the construction and training at the school. Students are learning skills that will not only benefit the school now but will enhance their earning potential after they graduate. Vegetables are finding their way into the school kitchen, which increases nutritional value and reduces food costs. Extra produce will be sold in the community to help meet budgetary needs at the school, which is always a challenge. A very successful project!

We are excited about all the changes at the Mahiga Hope schools and so grateful to all of our supporters. School performance is rising right alongside the improvement in nutrition and facilities. Access to the library and new textbooks has made a real difference that we are seeing in test scores. Study materials are always in short supply, as are funds for tutors and additonal instruction. But the kids are proud of their school and work very hard to do their best. It is wonderful to see the change in a few short years--giving us all hope.

Thank you for making it happen!

Kenya Schools Tour Summer 2013

The Nobelity Project Kenya Schools Tour of 2013 rocked! We visited 10 of our 18 partner schools and saw the classrooms, libraries, water systems and more made possible by your support. Our days were spent meeting with staff & school administrators, and celebrating with parents & students, but every “thank you” we received we promised to bring back home to you. Because the impact doesn’t end with the completion of these projects – it begins. By bridging these gaps in funding we bring the next rung of the ladder within reach for these schools. Your support of these communities has inspired not only hope, but has created a path to a better future for their children. I wanted to share their smiles with you so you can see the difference every one of you makes – to them, and to us.

Ongoing needs for the Kenya schools we work with include: student scholarships, funding for music, dance, and sports training, supplies and textbooks.  And we continue to build classrooms, clean water systems, or other infrastructure projects where needed.

 We believe that by improving conditions in one community we improve the state of the global community, and working together we tilt the world towards peace.  Thank you for being a part of that story.

An Amazing Day at Mahiga Hope High

The Nobelity Project Kenya Schools Tour of 2013 rocked! After visiting 10 of our partner schools and seeing new classrooms, libraries, water systems and more, we arrived at Mahiga Hope High School where your donation is still making a difference every day.

For me, coming back to Mahiga feels like coming home. It is were our work in Kenya began and where your support of this community has inspired not only hope, but has created a path to a better future for their children. Our days were spent working with staff & school administrators, and celebrating with parents & students, but every "thank you" we received we promised to bring back home to you.

During a visit with some donors and friends,  I was rushing across the school grounds, and glanced back over my shoulder to see not just a collection of buildings, but a school - bustling with activities, energy and pride.
Turk says "It all started with a tree" but in 5 years look at what it has become:

Highlights from 2013:
•School ranked 12th out of 24 in the region on national exams. For a new school that is a huge accomplishment!
•Science Labs are currently under expansion to accommodate for testing and improvement in scores
•Traditional music and dance teams swept competition awards
•Boys and girls sports teams advanced to regional finals
•Trade skills classes (sewing and crafts) teaching applicable skills have a waiting list. More sewing machines needed!
•Gardens are producing skilled agricultural students and food for the kitchens
•Largest incoming freshman class so far--the incentive of a high school education is improving the primary school scores as well
•And we are incredibly proud that we have graduates going onto college studies.

We could use some support for the expansion of the skills classes so these kids graduate with some earning capacity. And as always there are students whose families just cannot meet the fees for them to attend and textbooks are in short supply. Your donations through the Global Giving 1000 Voices for Hope campaign will go directly to these much needed programs.

What seemed a dream just a few years ago is now a living, breathing, productive and happy school. And as I walked out of the gates for the trip home I made sure to read the new school motto once again: "Hope shines forth and lights the world."

Sewing classes are a big hit (even with the boys)!
